Heatly appoints new Technical Manager


09 January 2024

Heat pump expert, Paul Spence, has been appointed as Technical Manager for heatly, the new app and supporting software currently in development, set to revolutionise the heat pump sector in 2024.

Paul has always worked in the heating industry, following his father's footsteps in the early 1970s, helping him out after school, in the holidays and on weekends. After leaving school at 15, Paul went straight into an apprenticeship with the largest industrial and commercial M&E company in the country at the time, Haden Young Ltd.

He joined the armed forces, serving on board HMS Ark Royal and HMS Newcastle and at a variety of shore bases, where he spent most of time dealing with chilled water plant ACP's and flash evaporators generating drinking water from sea water - both of which use the same principles as today's heat pumps.

After leaving the armed forces, Paul set up his own heating business, primarily installing gas and oil-fired heating systems. He has been running that successfully for over 30 years.
